Maruti SX4 Owner Review
I own a Oyster blue colored Maruti SX4 and trust me half of the job in terms of looks and styling is done by the color itself. I have always noticed that the pedestrians have always taken a look at my car and have admired the beauty of the car. I am so very proud of it. For me the looks of the car were very important and I like the designing done by the Maruti designers as the back of the car is not that protruding as compared to other sedans in India. The windscreen mirrors are very wide and huge, enabling a perfect vision while on drive. According to me the waistline of the car is simply superb and worth a look.
Comfort; The car gets a thumps up from me as the dashboard and the interiors are done beautifully in the car. Hats off to Maruti Suzuki for doing a fab job in this front. The integrated music system comes with a USB port for those portable devices to be run while on a drive. In terms of the comfort, the audio controls that are mounted on the steering catch a major limelight.
Pickup: The 1500 cc engine in the car powers an excellent pick up and acceleration. The drive offered by the car is really smooth and quick. I have never faced any issue in terms of the pick up even when the AC is switched on most of the time.
Mileage; The car gives the mileage of about 13 kmpl in city areas and that too with the AC switched on. Isn't that superb? I love my car for this.
Best Features; The climate control, the illumination provided in the instrument panel, illuminated audio controls on the steering, three assist grip, rear demister for clear vision etc. The list of features that I love in the car is endless and to pick one of them would be a tough call for me.
Needs to improve:  Nothing majorly wrong as such, but as in other Maruti cars, I feel that the quality of plastics used could be improved in the Maruti SX4 as well as that takes away a sense of sophistication.
Overall Experience: I am more than happy to have purchased Maruti SX4. Its a superb car in every sense and am really satisfies as a customer. I suggest the car for anyone looking for a reasonable sedan with some really appealing looks and features.

Maruti Kizashi in India on 2nd February

Maruti Kizashi will soon hit the Indian roads, it is being speculated that the new sedan will come with a price tag of whooping 16 lakh. Earlier also Maruti tried to strengthen its grip in the luxury sedan segment by introducing Maruti Baleno but it did not achieve success.

Maruti KizashiMaruti Suzuki is now planning to increase its portfolio with the launch of Maruti Kizashi. On the other hand Maruti's yet another model Maruti SX4 has been doing pretty well. Maruti Kizashi was featured in the auto expo in January 2010 in Delhi where the car received great response from onlookers and was highly appreciated for its advanced features, looks and technology. Depending on the demand and response from the Indian buyers Maruti might think to commence the production of this splendid venture in India. But as of now Maruti Kizashi will be shipped from Japan by Suzuki as a completely built unit (CBU).

Maruti KizashiRight now there are no plans to initiate the production of this new venture in India. Consisting of 2.4 litre petrol engine which is mated with a six speed manual transmission is also capable of churning out a top power of 185 hp with the maximum torque of 230 Nm. Maruti Kizashi will come in two wheel drive version in India, however it is available in two wheel drive and four wheel drive versions in the international auto markets.

Maruti KizashiMaruti Kizasi will be competing with cars like Toyota Corolla Alt is, Honda Civic and Chevrolet Cruzewho have already created a niche for themselves in the Indian auto market and have received a great response from the Indian Buyers.
Maruti Suzuki has maintained its reputation of being the ruler of the hatchback segment in India.It has manufactured various cars in the small car segments. However, it has not been lucky as far as the luxury car segment is concerned. Let's see whether Maruti will be successful in its plans this time or not.
